At CES this week, Sony Mobile announced the Xperia Z1 Compact. A waterproof 4.3-inch Android smartphone with a 2.2 GHz quad core processor

Sony Xperia Z1 Compact announced

The Xperia Z1 Compact announced at CES this week is the smaller brother of the flagship model Xperia Z1. The usual way to advertise a new smartphone followup is to lend out the name from one of the high-end models but to ship it with lower specs to a lower price. This time Sony did something clever and made a smartphone with the best possible specifications but with a smaller screen size. The Xperia Z1 Compact has the same 20.7 megapixel camera, the same 2.2 GHz quad-core processor, 2 GB of RAM as the Xperia Z1. In addition to the smaller 4.3-inch display with the 720 x 1280 pixel resolution the only thing we found different compared to the Xperia Z1 is a less powerful 2300 mAh battery. The smaller display requires less power so we are guessing that you will experience the approximately same amount of talk- and standby time. We have used the Xperia Z1 for months now, and the Stamina mode really help preserving battery usage. We do like the large 5-inch display on the Xperia Z1, but often which it had a smaller size. This is where a Xperia Z1 Compact would come handy.
